Post anything and everything Robin Williams.




When i was younger, this song from Aladdin 3 always reminded me of my dad. He did an amazing job on all Disney songs. RIP

I think the funniest role he had was the corrupt, drug crazed kids show host in Death to Smoochie.

Gonna miss him.

I have to say......my favorite comedy role for him was Good Morning Vietnam.......It is the only movie I remember going to and watching my father sit on the edge of his seat just laughing his arse off..........Then when I learned 90% of his radio stuff was improv, just showed his true genius........RIP......He will be missed.

His comedic genius was without parallel, but the mark of any great actor (IMO) is versatility. He played a great role in One Hour Photo, and a particular episode of Law and Order his character was phenomenal. His character was exceptionally smart, defended himself in court and walked, even though he was guilty. It was a brilliant episode.

The world is a less happy place without Mr. Williams, but I think Heaven just got a little funnier. I can hear it now, "Thank you. You've been a great audience. I'll be here for eternity."

Im with rockintitz on this 1...
Rainbow Randolph in Death to Smoochy is 1 of his best roles.



And I always liked him in the Terry Gilliam film The Fisher King, though its quite a sad movie.



And he was also King of the Moon...




RIP

I don't know how to imbed videos but my all time favorite movie of his was "What Dreams may come".

Awesome movie.

Even though he was always funny, I always had the impression there was a sadness in his eyes for some reason.

I'd forgotten all about One Hour Photo... Jeeze that was a creepy character. Played to a T.

Although he was known mainly as a comedian, he was incredibly taletnted to have the range to pull off diverse chararters such as that one, and my personal favorite role of his, What Dreams May Come.

So many of his movies were a big part of my childhood, especially the TV show Mork & Mindy.

Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook, Aladdin, Jumanji, The Birdcage, Patch Adams, Good Will Hunting... So many greats.

I don't think I've been as affected over the death of an actor since Chris Farley.

And let's not forget his stand-up comedy routines: Here's my fav clip.



"And some people tell me, Robin, I'm a functional alcoholic. Which is, you can be one, it's like being a parapalegic lap dancer, you can do it.... Just not as well as the others."

"I believe alcoholics are God's rodeo clowns, we're the only ones doing the stupid # nobody else will do."

Still in sadden shock. Been up for 4 days now watching Robin did not know this was coming...

Watched this morning after the news this (7 hours ago)



Then went back to his awesome movie Dead Again..... Saw 4 nights ago

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Blown away by one scene will not spoil it for those who saw it "the Swim"!

I have many I am revisiting and today I will be reviewing

Death to Smoochy

Yesterday morning before news (GMT) I saw again Awakening again blown away by Robin and Roberts interaction....

So sad.... Always thought Comedians had it made where I apply alcohol and an attempt of being human he could make ladies laugh their knickers off...... Always thought men like that would have the world by the balls ergo what chance do people like me have..... I was taught in military school in '63 never to envy someone as one never knows the hell they walk through in a non denomination Sunday lesson as it were. Ringo Starr was an example cause of his sickly ways before the attention and that he had a ton of pimples... I never knew about both at 9 years old.... but that is the only lesson of those many Sundays that struck a cord.

Robin is with his "God" now and no longer in pain. I hope he finds his good friend John their and that they are saying here are to the good times we left too soon....

Miss you Robin... Marin and Bay Area will not be the same again...

I remember watching Robin Williams on Mork & Mindy as a kid. Then my father took my brothers and me to see "POPEYE" in the movie theatre..he was awesome!! So a notch for "POPEYE the SAILOR MAN"!!!

Maybe you'll find out where dreams may come...Thanks for the laughs and the tears Robin!!

That's very perceptive. And honest.

Think about the diversity of his acting. All of the different types of movies he's been in. He was an amazing actor, and by all accounts a very humble man offscreen.





He reminds me of Steve Martin and Richard Pryor in a way. One of the funniest men to ever make us laugh, but you got the impression that all that comedy was a diversion to make us look the other way. Away from whatever demons he was running from. The fact that he was so real about it all though made you realize that no matter what kind of BS your life may hand you that makes you turn to drugs and alcohol as an escape, anyone can beat it. And he did just that by making us laugh.

It's not everyday that I feel bad when an actor that I never knew personally passes away, but that's the case here.

RIP Robin.
